A5s during "Chips on the Beach" session


I'm playing the "Chips on the Beach" simulation on APT. This particular game is 2/5, very loose with a lot of passive callers. Everybody has around 100BB. I'm in the small blind, and I have A5s. Three players limp. The pot is $22 and it costs me $3 to see the flop.

In this scenario, every APT adviser recommended folding. What I don't understand is why. Yes, my position is bad, but I'm getting approximately 7:1 odds of calling and since the game is loose, it's unlikely that big blind behind me is going to raise. Most likely he will check, and I will get to see the flop. So is this really a fold?

    In the long run yes. A5 suited OOP in a multi handed flop is just not that strong. And you’re probably gonna have to chase all the way to the river in a bloated pot to hit the straight or flush.

    The software on this site is consistent with that recommendation. It's AI must have it be a negative EV for even 1/2 blind, especially factoring in some probability of a raise from BB. Seeing a flop with suited ace with wheel potential isn't worst mistake any of us will ever make. It's a better play than random off-suited ace, but still marginal hand. Problem with the hands that 240 people limp in is that you can't put anyone on a good range and probably have to make better than 1 pair to feel comfortable if there is any action at all.

    We’re really lucky here in Adelaide that there are so many great cafes, restaurants and pubs that are great for the whole family. There is nothing better than finding a restaurant that just ‘get’ kids, and who go over and above to welcome them and cater for them https://best-casino-directory.com/online-casinos/.
